Rina is a mutant and discovered she had the ability to travel through time as well as manipulate it when she was in her early college years.
Rina Patel was a college student who had recently discovered her "time-travelling" ability. One day, after seeing a newsreport on television about the New Warriors, she accidentally sent herself forward in time (although she had been aiming backwards) to a point where she was a member of the team. Soon after, she would have more visions, and these would show her the death of the New Warrior Speedball. This led her to seek out the team and warn them of his impending doom.
As it turned out, the "Speedball" she had seen die was actually a time-traveller named Darrion Grobe who had replaced the real Speedball Robbie Baldwin after the events in Time and Time Again. Upon his death (it was an unavoidable factor in the timeline) he directed his subconscious into Rina's mind, and she learned all his memories about what had happened. He had gone back in Speedy's body to prevent his time-travelling father, Advent, from detroying time, and with the aid or Rina and her teammates, wound up succeeding. This then returned the "real" Speedball (Robbie) to the team, where he had a brief "relationship" with Rina.
By this point, Rina had become an active member of the team, but her heroing career would be cut short. When Volx, the Dire Wraith Queen tried to detonate a bomb which would take all heroes and villains superpowers away, Rina used her time manipulating powers to slow down time and reduce the harmful effect of the bomb. Nonetheless, by being so close when a weakened bomb went off, she still lost all of her powers, and until now, those powers have not returned.
